A PERSONAL NOTE FROM DR. THOMAS
Hello! My name is Jayshree, but most know me as Jay. Houston born and California raised, but my educational pursuits and background in cultural anthropology have allowed me to call several places home thus far- Texas, Kentucky, Austria, most of South/Southeast Asia, Central America, and Africa.
As the saying goes- “you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl.” I’m thrilled to continue my residency training in Family Medicine at UTMB. There is something incredibly special about the lifelong relationships you build with patients and their families through assuming the role as their PCP. Additionally, being an athlete most of my life (basketball, distance running, pole vaulting), I chose this program for its specialized focus in sports medicine as the training aligns with my future practice goals.
You can catch me outside of clinic at a local spin class, planning my next hiking adventure with my sweet Doberman (8/63 National Parks to date), sharing my South Asian culture on stage through Bollywood choreography, or teaching my houseplants how to remain resilient. Sharing meals is also my love language.
I look forward to meeting you and exchanging stories!
